Black Sound Listening Lab: Afro-Asian Island Intimacies
The Caribbean islands are marked by what Lisa Lowe calls the “intimacies of four continents,” a nexus of settler colonization and dispossession, enslavement and indenture, migration and diaspora, which has entangled the histories of the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe. In the second listening lab, we will explore how threads of these knotted histories have shaped the Caribbean's sonic landscape. How can we attune ourselves to the influences of Chinese migrants on quintessentially ‘Black’ sounds like country, mento, calypso, dancehall, reggae, reggaeton, and hip hop? Literary theorist, Cultural historian and DJ Tao Leigh Goffe will be in conversation with Ethnomusicologist Jessica Baker as we listen to strains of Afro-Asian sonic intimacies in the Caribbean.
